Monday Night Community Potluck

I love what our community has done/is doing to help out our furloughed neighbors. There have been coffee times at the Town Community Center, donations from local businesses and now on Monday (MLK day) the Girl Scouts along with the Cheverly United Methodist Church are hosting a spaghetti dinner/potluck. Come between 5-7 to eat dinner with…

Local Churches

Tomorrow begins the season of lent where Christians all over the world will observe Ash Wednesday. Lent is a time of repentance, fasting and preparation for the coming of Easter. It is a time of self-examination and reflection. In the early church, Lent was a time to prepare new converts for baptism. Today, Christians focus on…

VBS 2017

Last night was the first night for VBS. I sat in the sanctuary and recalled all of my prior VBS experiences (see the photos above) and got really sentimental about the years my boys have already spent growing up in Cheverly. See, every year Cheverly United Methodist Church has a summer VBS program that my…

An Evening of Music

A free concert with local musicians? Count me in! After a week of marches, inaugural events and the like, let us commune together as Cheverly neighbors and rest. Here is our invitation: Join us at Cheverly United Methodist Church for an hour of classical music while coming together to do some good for our community! Cheverly…

Backyard Bible Club

Check out some of Cheverly’s youngest. If I’ve learned anything since having kids its that new parents often explore faith questions. Thankfully Cheverly has two churches, The Cheverly United Methodist Church and St. Ambrose Catholic Church. Cheverly United Methodist hosts a VBS every year that I love! And now there is even a Backyard Bible…

Truck Touch 2016: Support Our Youngest

And what are your neighbors meeting about at 8:00pm on a Tuesday evening? (in a preschool classroom of all places?) I’m so glad you asked. Your neighbors have children in Cheverly Weekday Nursery, a local preschool option that meets at the Cheverly United Methodist Church. The space is absolutely beautiful and is completely transformed from its…

Cheverly Gives Back!

One of the many things I like our community is the fact that we do give back! There are so many giving people who live in Cheverly. During the holiday season, are you looking for opportunities to give back? If so, consider the following: The Silent Auction (see picture above) benefiting our local church, Cheverly…

Friday Night=Movie Night

Hello. Are we not the coolest neighborhood around?! Who wants to fight traffic on Friday night in DC? I don’t. Nope. I want to walk my boys over to VBS and then…if they are not asleep by the end…drive them a few blocks away to the pool. And all of these activities are run by…

We Choose Cheverly: Meet Our Leaders: Dave and Casey Kneipp

From our “We Choose Cheverly” writer Chase O’Brien: As a mother of three small boys, there are many things that I appreciate about living in Cheverly. Something that ranks very high on my list is Halloween. October is the only time of the year when my boys WANT to walk to school EVERY single day….

I Was A Loner Until…VBS!

Parents, parents, parents! Yes, I’m screaming! All of you should consider sending your children to VBS at Cheverly United Methodist Church this year. I cannot say enough GREAT things about their program, the reasonable price, the memories my child has made, the teachers, the program and arts and crafts. We love CUMC’s VBS! So when…

Truck Touch 2015

My family just loves the Truck Touch. I don’t know how they do it, but a bunch of volunteers team up every year to raise money for the Cheverly Weekday Nursery–and they only charge a mere $5 per person! (18 months and under are free) These volunteers set up food stands, get tons of amazing…

Real Estate Update

All pending. All of these homes are pending. If you, like me, are crazy about real estate you have probably noticed that there are barely any homes for sale  in Cheverly. In fact, I’ve been corresponding with a few of my readers who are interested in buying and they are just waiting for a house to…
